Lake Sylvia State Park Campground: Many Camp Sites near Lake and in the Forest

I did not camp in this facility, but the place sure looks like it would be an attractive place to spend the night.

As most of the camp sites are reserved, all of the signs in the camp area say to check with the ranger in the park headquarters before heading for a camp site. There are instructions for how to register on the state parks web site (below).

During the peak periods, there is a booth at the entrance to the park that will be staffed and campers will be organized from there. However, during the spring and fall there is far less staff in the park.

See photo 3 for a photo of the park headquarters.

There are only 35 tent spaces in this state park, with some of them having a long enough length to allow a small RV or trailer to be parked in the camp site. This means that the camping is a bit more intimate than you would find in the vast complexes at the largest of state parks. However, please note that a number of the camp sites are simply too small to allow very large vehicles, and even the roads into the state park are narrow and curvy enough to limit vehicle size. Once in the park, the roads become even narrower and tighter in their curves.

Privacy between the camp sites is somewhat limited.

Some of the camp sites sit right on the edge of the lake, and some campers bring boats and have them available on the lake right next to their camp site.
